You go to the tire shop & service center and get new tires, that’s great! Now, what do you do with old tires? You can leave them at the shop and they will send them to a certified recycling center or you can take 1 or 2 or all 4 of them home and repurpose and reuse them.
We found some very creative and innovative ways to give your tires a second life. You can find links to each project’s instructions under each image’s source.

Or just maybe it’s a snails life?
Well, little snails probably won’t find their way into your tire planter. What will find their way, however, are lots of pretty flowers for the gardening obsessed. Gardeners are always looking for new spaces and places to plant flowers and you don’t even need a green thumb to create these lovely planters. One of our favorite colorful planters is by Roeshel of DIY Show Off.
